Tegan Martin farewells the jungle

Tegan Martin has become the sixth celebrity to farewell the jungle as finals week began.

The beauty queen who excelled at the tucker trials had lost 3kgs during her five-week stay in the jungle.

Martin hopes the experience gave Australia a chance to see the real her in the jungle.

“It was one of the reasons I did the show, I wanted people to see the real me, the hippy side of me that loves a laugh, loves a joke and seeks adventure,” said Martin, who competed on the show to raise money and awareness for her chosen charity, Beyond Blue.

Martin’s departure leaves eight celebrities remaining in the jungle camp as contestants go into their sixth and final week

Still in the running  are Natalie Bassingthwaighte, Dane Swan, Lisa Curry, Ash Pollard, Steve Price, Nazeem Hussain, Casey Donovan and Carson Kressley.
